Letters to the Editor: Public offices forced to expand staff since gun-enforcement ban

Started Apr 3, 2013 0 Replies

    Nearly two years ago, Florida’s Legislature enacted a law that banned any city or county from enforcing gun and ammunition restrictions. This law lifted long-standing ordinances banning weapons…Continue

Letter to the Editor: Plastics are not all alike

Posted on February 4, 2015 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

    Your editorial and article on waste plastics in the ocean and on the beaches were very interesting and do not reflect well on our stewardship of the beaches and the oceans.

    Many people would argue that these materials will last “forever,” however long that might be. But before condemning all plastics, remember that there are human hands responsible for each piece of plastic in the ocean.

    Also note there is another side to the picture, and that is the engineered version…

Letter to the Editor: Wrong to link beach talks, segregation

Posted on February 4, 2015 at 4:58pm 0 Comments

    The December issue of The Coastal Star told a terrible tale about the acrid racial segregation that ruled in Florida throughout the 1950s. A lot of us are old enough to remember how vicious the hold of bigotry was in those years. We certainly do.

Letter to the Editor: Reject iPic theater at Atlantic and Federal

Posted on February 4, 2015 at 4:57pm 0 Comments

    iPic’s present plan for an eight-screen cinema and a 279-space parking garage with 43,000 feet of office and 8,000 feet of retail is too much building, squeezed into too small a space, near the busy intersection of Federal Highway and Atlantic Avenue in downtown Delray Beach.

    Their image shows no drop-off/pickup space for iPic’s pedestrian entrance on Federal. Instead, drivers will be stopping in the travel lane.

    The Florida Department of Transportation has told Safety…
